I thank Ambassador Terry Branstad for his more than three years of service to the American people as U.S. Ambassador to the People’s Republic of China.
President @realDonaldTrump chose Ambassador Branstad because his decades long experience dealing with China made him the best person to represent the Administration and to defend American interests and ideals in this important relationship.
Ambassador Branstad has contributed to rebalancing U.S.-China relations so that it is results-oriented, reciprocal, and fair. This will have lasting, positive effects on U.S. foreign policy in the Asia-Pacific for decades to come.

.@khamenei_ir’s fabrications that the U.S. is responsible for the #WuhanVirus put Iranians, Americans, and the rest of the world at risk. Facts matter. Here are a few:
FACT: In February, Iran’s chief terror airline, Mahan Air, continued to fly at least 55 times between Tehran and China, spreading the #WuhanVirus. At least five countries’ first cases of #COVID19 were a direct result of the Iranian regime’s disregard for everyone’s health.
FACT: The Iranian regime ignored repeated warnings from its own health officials, and denied its first death from the #WuhanVirus for at least nine days. The regime continues to lie to the Iranian people and the world about the number of cases and deaths.

Today @POTUS unveiled the Vision for Peace, another courageous and bold step towards a lasting peace between Israel & the Palestinians. whitehouse.gov/peacetoprosper…
It ensures the safety & security of Israel & offers a realistic path to Palestinian statehood with self-governance & national dignity.
This Vision preserves the capital of the State of Israel in Jerusalem and envisions the capital of the State of Palestine in Al Quds, which will include parts of East Jerusalem.

It was my pleasure to speak to #AIPAC2019 today. My message was not only to reaffirm the essentiality of the U.S.-Israel relationship, but also that the U.S. stands with the Jewish people and Israel in the fight against the world’s oldest bigotry: anti-Semitism.
The rise of anti-Semitism & anti-Zionism strikes at the very foundation of freedom. The Trump Administration opposes it unequivocally & will fight it relentlessly, from the fever swamp of the UN Human Rights Council to the world’s #1 proponent of anti-Semitism: Iran. #AIPAC2019
We will not grow weary of this fight. Israel should be admired, not attacked, embraced, not vilified. I’m proud to lead American diplomacy to support Israel’s right to defend itself, stand with the Jewish people, and champion the perennial cause of religious liberty. #AIPAC2019

The U.S. condemns the attacks on civilians in #Venezuela perpetrated by Maduro’s thugs. These attacks have resulted in deaths and injuries. Our deepest sympathies to the families of those who have died due to these criminal acts. We join their demand for justice. #EstamosUnidosVE
We denounce Maduro’s refusal to let humanitarian assistance reach #Venezuela. What kind of a sick tyrant stops food from getting to hungry people? The images of burning trucks filled with aid are sickening.
While @jguaido leads the effort to get the aid to the people, Maduro sends armed gangs to attack innocent civilians. #EstamosUnidosVE

The men who rebuilt Western civilization after WWII knew that only strong U.S. leadership could unite sovereign nations around the globe. This allowed us to enjoy the greatest human flourishing in modern history. This is the leadership @POTUS is boldly reasserting.
International bodies must help facilitate cooperation that bolsters the security & values of the free world, or they must be reformed or eliminated. When treaties are broken, the violators must be confronted & the treaties must be fixed or discarded. Words should mean something.
Every nation must honestly acknowledge its responsibilities to its citizens and ask if the current international order serves the good of its people. And if not, we must ask how we can right it. This is what @POTUS is doing. He sees the world as it is, not as we wish it to be.
